I've only gone and blinkin' done it! Oh yes, that 20-minute non-stop run is in the bag! Let me re-read that aloud to myself: that 20-minute non-stop run is in the bag ...

It wasn't fast (who cares? Not me!) and it wasn't pretty (again - who cares?) but it was 20 minutes non-stop!

Nothing can stop me now - bring on that 22 December Park Run Christmas graduation!

Once you do that 20 minutes run everything changes doesn’t it ? You can believe you will graduate

Adding 10 mins over the next few weeks is nothing now 🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️😊

Well done Amerynthe!!! Isn't it amazing to discover what we're capable of! Can't wait to accomplish this myself in 4 weeks! 😁😁

It's a fantastic feeling, I almost cried. Instead, I sang along (a bit breathlessly, and I've never been in tune) with my music as I walked home from the sports centre. Looking forward to hearing about your success over the coming runs and weeks!

Great job... 20 minutes is the milestone run... the one that shows you you’ve got this. Slow and steady into week 6 and then you’re into the long run prep for that parkrun. Keep on enjoying it.

Fabulous! I did mine this morning! Equally slow, but also not caring! I like your idea of a graduation park run 👍
